Forfar v Peterhead

Recommended Posts

This is a proverbial 6 pointer for both teams. If we win the gap increases to 8 points but a Forfar win closes the gap to 2 points. Both teams played Raith recently and Forfar managed a draw while we lost 1-0. Does this mean that Forfar should beat us given they have home advantage? We certainly can't afford to lose this game. If we play like we did against Raith I think we may sneak a win.

Difficult knowing how this might go, Forfar should have got a bit of a lift with a change of manager & picking up a point at Starks. We have played really well in a couple games lately but have been finding it hard in front of goal. It certainly looks as if every team in the league this year a capable of beating each other but to be involved at the right end of the table we need to put a few results together Saturday would be the ideal time to make a move.

I just hope Forfar manage to find a way to get near the front of the goal. A big game for us but playing at home, with things hopefully settled down on and off the park, I'm hoping for a winning team performance.

Murray was outstanding today
Yes, topped off with the goal.

First half especially much more positive play, chasing the opposition and generally up for it.

Ok, a bit of a dip second half but got to be happy with a vital 3 points.

"Happy days are here again.... "

So happy for Stuart, Foxy and Barry, always want us to win and a bit more so for any new manager but given that trio's history with the club I wanted it even more. Feeling positive.

Quite incredible that some on here have never wanted his name on the team sheet....worked like a trojan as always (so did the whole team)

What a difference when Ross Forbes is played in that role.

We now need to get a little run going and who knows we may claw our way back in to the top half.

Agreed. Forbes needs to play in the 10 with two workers either side (Tapping and Murray today) and it worked well.

The reaction from conceding was the best part of today.

Always liked Murray, maybe because he was part of our U20s - along with Michael Kennedy & Matty Aitken.

Forbes is so much better centrally rather than out wide. He's fairly lazy so he's much better as a playmaker rather than a wide player cutting inside.

Poor performance from us at times we allowed Forfar to do as they pleased with us standing off too far rather than pressing high. Fairly typical from us to get back into the game with a good spell, equalise then have two of our players half-heartedly go for a loose ball which neither of them won Forfar go up the park & score a winner. Thought the only real bonus today was there was a spell that Aiden Smith started to show what he can do in his best game for us for a while & was unlucky to see a good effort come off a post. Officials were a waste of time again today, not sure if they were maybe upset by Jims statement during the week, Dickenson is usually a waste of time so no surprize there, The terrace side linesman was so bad it was a complete joke. Have not had much bother with them in the past but can see how quite a few away supporters & some home ones are unhappy with the stewarding at Station Park at one stage in the game there were two of us men of a certain age trying to watch the game & with the whole touchline to pick from there was a group of about 4 stewards decided to have a get together directly in front of us to pass the time of day, when ask if they could possibly move along to allow us to see what we had paid to come & watch we got the we have to do our job blah blah blah & one of them moved even more in front of us, think he would have wasted more time than the keeper was doing, although he was there it was not so much the ginger one that was most antagonistic but his older buddy, there was absolutely no need for it & can understand some folk staying away from Station park

Im pretty sure this is the guy called Lovegrove.
 

Captain caveman is the ginger one , more stewards than crowd , most of the stewards are either on job seekers or pip , hopefully more people report them too the dwp , they are not volunteers and get paid

Have sent an e-mail to David McGregor outlining the stewarding shortcomings so will see if I get a reply. Did suggest if they really wanted to monitor the crowd get them to sit facing the crowd on a stool to keep them out of the way.
